Dogs For Adoption – Bergerac SPA

Many of the more vulnerable dogs (and cats) are taken into Phoenix care from the Bergerac SPA Refuge. Sadly, we don’t have the foster space to be able to accommodate more than a very small percentage.

However, if you would like to adopt directly from the SPA pound, we are happy to join you and assist with the adoption. We may, in certain cases, be able to negotiate the tariff.

We can`t promise, as it depends on available foster-space, but we will also endeavor to rehome any dog adopted directly from the SPA pound if the adoption doesn`t work out. Returning it to the pound would be a difficult decision all round!

Please note that dogs adopted from Bergerac SPA are NOT sterilised unless indicated in the text. Currently, male cats are castrated, but female cats are NOT sterilised.

HESTIA (Bergerac SPA Ref. 300) – 3 year old Labrador X female

Can you resist those dark, chocolate brown eyes?

This adorable young lady, 3 years old and sterilised, is looking for her forever home with a family who will be able to give her their love and their time to develop her training.

This is what Bergerac SPA volunteer Sue has to say about Hestia…

“Hestia already has basic commands and each time I take her out for a walk and we stop for a little cuddle, she automatically turns round, sits down and puts her paws on my knees, as if we are just about to have a little chat.

Hestia has been in her present lodging for far too long.

Hestia is not very tall, just about knee height, so has to jump up to let visitors know she is there. When walking with other dogs she shows curiosity but not aggression. She was in with other dogs for a short while, but became a bit dominant, so has been by herself since then. Hopefully her sterilisation will make her less dominant. She is energetic and loves to be with people. Hestia walks well on the lead after letting off some energy. To begin with I think she would prefer to be the only animal in the household and with an enclosed garden until her training is complete.

Take another look into those irresistible eyes… and please come and see her for yourself”.

MALIN (Bergerac SPA ref. 084) – Male Pointer X

Hi everyone! Well as you can see I am not a lap dog! I am adorable though and love attention and affection. My favourite pastimes are walking, running and letting off steam, and I would love a companion to do this with.


I know that I can be trained as the volunteers at the SPA have told me! I have been castrated and at nearly 2 years old I have a full life ahead of me, I just need to find that special person with the time to give me, and a good sized garden. 

As I was found wandering I can’t tell you much about my past, I can only tell you that my future is what interests me. I have been at the SPA for a while now, and don’t know why, perhaps because I am a big and bouncy dog, so I am crossing my paws that there is someone out there looking for someone like me……is that you?

PADDY (Bergerac SPA ref. 466) – Male Bruno de Jura

“Eh hem! Yes, I am over here​! A very polite, calm and gentle male hound, 8 years of age but still eager to enjoy life with my new owner. We could enjoy peaceful country walks, I am easy when on a lead, and am not perturbed by cats or small children and I enjoy the company of other dogs (I am not castrated though). I would love some quality time with lots of cuddles and I will behave myself impeccably. Life at the SPA is a bit hectic at the moment and I am finding it all a bit confusing, so if you feel you want a lovely-natured companion to keep you company, who will be responsive to training, I would love for you to come and see me to have a chat… soon?”

MILEY (Marsac SPA ref. 1960) – Mixed breed (possibly Lab X Pointer)


Miley has been in the SPA refuge for 18 months now, which is about three quarters of her life. She is full of bounce however, and she has her laid back and zen moments too. 

She should be quite easy to train, however a fenced garden would be required to keep her safe. All she needs is a loving family willing to educate her. 

We believe Miley will be a wonderful family dog.


If you would like to meet Miley, please contact Marsac SPA volunteer, Gillian Le Solleu, on 06 21 59 16 72 or

CYRUS (Marsac SPA ref. 1958) – 10 year old male

Cyrus is an older dog but he is as fit as a fiddle! He is full of energy, maybe a little anxious at times but then he’s finding it hard to adjust to the refuge at his age. Chest xrays & blood tests are all normal. 

Cyrus is a lovely faithful soul. Come and adopt him and give him a chance of a peaceful retirement. For more details about this gorgeous boy take a look at the SPA’s website:

If you are interested in giving Cyrus a home please contact Gillian on 06 21 59 16 72 or on 

KENZO (Marsac SPA ref. 01224) – Male Lab X

This lovely boy arrived at the pound having been found wandering lost and sadly he was never claimed. KENZO is a gorgeous lab cross, he is medium sized and is around 6 years old.

He adores people and loves his walks, he is good on the lead once he gets over the initial excitement of freedom from his pen. He thoroughly enjoys play-time and would make a great family dog. Kenzo is castrated and waiting adoption.

Kenzo has already spent more than two years in the refuge, so we are giving him an extra push to find him a loving family. You can read more about Kenzo on the SPA’s website:

If you think you could give Kenzo a place in your heart and your home, please contact
